    A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union shows a dramatic increase in the U.S. Department of Justice’s electronic surveillance of Americans under the Obama administration.

    Documents obtained by the ACLU through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that under President Obama between 2009 and 2011, warrantless electronic surveillance requests by the Justice Department to spy on phone communications increased 60 percent from 23,535 to 37,616.

    The number of people whose phone calls were subject to such surveillance during that same time period tripled.

    Phone numbers called and received, emails sent and received, and other Internet communications were all monitored by the federal government via “pen register” and “trap and trace devices” — systems that measure the data, not the content, about the communication.

    Such techniques are different from wiretaps, which monitor the content of communications.

    More people were subjected to federal government pen register and trap and trace surveillance of their phones in the past two years than in the previous decade.

    DOJ surveillance of Internet communications, while rarer, increased 361 percent between 2009 and 2011. The ACLU’s report adds to a list of revelations over the past year about the U.S. government’s domestic surveillance efforts...

    It doesn't matter to liberals..Nothing does. Obama could come in to a libs house and kill his entire family.. that lib would probably take the blame. Nothing this corrupt THUG does matters.

    See, when you pass a law (PATRIOT Act) that is so obviously filled with potential for abuse, this is what happens. The dumbshits didn't care when Bush was doing it, and it never occurred to them his successor would have the same abusive power at his disposal. They were stupid enough to believe this was only going to be used on terra-ists.

    When will the dumbshit worshippers of a centralized police state ever learn?

    I'm still waiting for the GOP to wake up with a bad hangover and a sheepish grin on its face. "Gosh, I guess we were for Big Government, after all, weren't we?"


    And of course, if Obama decides to start waterboarding people, THEN the UnConservatives will start claiming it is torture.


    This shit is positively Orwellian in its selective amnesia.

    There was no "potential"...It was passed to be abused.
